What happened to the pool?
eing that we are stuck in what seems to be a never-ending nor’easter season in which trees and wires may not survive one of those massive wind gusts, this picture caught our attention. We are not sure what the weather was on this day, believed to be in May 1933, but it seems the wind played a factor in this tree’s unfortunate fall into the swimming pool at 10th and Mifflin streets. It was so powerful that it crashed through a brick wall, too. The scene of the damage was the now defunct St. Mary’s Cemetery.
